man to receive forgiveness, through a personal
acceptance of Christ's death, and by this acceptance
to enter into fellowship with God.

planned for September. There will be mountain climbs,
dinners and lots of get-together activities. We will have
weekly meetings with different speakers. This past year

and input into the group activities. We have many plans
and expectations for next year and welcome all students
and faculty to join us in acheiving our goals.
